They cant possibly damage modern hardware.

Real systems are better than vmware or xen instances for good testing 
for several reasons. So even if you can grab such images one way or the 
other, I would recomming testing in on the hardware directly rather than 
using virtualisation layers which do no exposure all the hardware for 
bare testing. Looking forward to feedback on the fedora-test list. Thanks.
